Increasing Mind Power

Increasing Mind Power

Have you ever considered the many ways there are to increase your mind power?  There are many methods, the following are just a few.

The following are powerful excersises to be used to increase your mind power, these have been used and proven to increase the rate at which your brain produces new brain cells to keep your brain alert and functioning to its maximum. These excersises are physical, cardio and mental.

To increase your mind power you need to begin by eating more healthy foods and if needed, take nutritional supplements such as - Vitamins A, B-complex, C and E, folic acid, selenium and alpha-lopoic acid, these are all associated with improved memory function. Fish, green,  vegetables, nuts (Almonds are believed to improve memory) lean meat and olive oil are all considered to be excellent foods to stimulate brain.

Ginkgo Biloba, a herbal supplement increases blood flow to the brain, another supplement, St. John's Wort  has also been shown to assist with increasing mind power by creating a positive mood; apple juice is renowned for its ability to produce the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, which results in increased memory. It has been suggested to avoid foods high in starch i.e. pasta, rice, and white bread as they can deplete B-complexVitamins.

Restful sleep, at least 5 hours a night, meditation, yoga or just taking time out to relax, these are all excellent therapies for your mind. Fatigue or stress will deplete much of your brains energy, which in turn will affect your brain function and memory. Try taking advantage of  'power naps' these are believed to improve mind power, 'power naps' are short 10 minute naps during the middle of the day.

Things like creative writing, crossword puzzles and speed reading will keep your brain stimulated,  increasing your brains sharpness and agility, just like muscular excersise, your brain requires exercise to function at its best and just like your body the brain needs a period of rest so that it can proccess and digest new information more easily and arrange it in the correct area allowing for easier access when the information is needed to be recalled.

Increasing your mind power doesn't necessarily mean increasing your intelligence; rather it is a way of using your brain and memory more effectively, increasing the speed of access to information and preventing the loss of brain or mind function. Keeping your mind and brain fit and healthy is just as important as it is for the rest of your body and it is never too late to start.

Using Positive Affirmations

Using Positive Affirmations

It has been proven that using positive affirmations will dramatically improve your lifes outcomes, this is well supported by medical and scientific evidence. Whichever part of your life you choose to improve, health, career, bad habits,  a positive attitude is a major factor in achieving success.

'Positive Thinking' techniques are one of the most popular and widely known because they are simple to use and are effective.  Any self-help or success strategy will use these tecniques to achieve the desired outcome.

A large percentage of all the thoughts you have daily are negative. These negative thoughts damage your ability to succeed and can eventually affect your health. Using positive affirmations is an excellent way to combat this negativity and gain control of your thinking.

Positive affirmations are short positive statements that you repeat to yourself on a  regular basis or you can leave them around written on post-its where they will be easily seen.  To create them they must be positive, in the present tense and state something that is wanted. The secret is to keep them brief as this makes it easier for them to be remembered and repeated.

Positive affirmations will challenge your negative thoughts and beliefs. Used correctly these affirmations will curb the flow of negative thoughts and the words that give them power over you.   Using affirmations is more than just repeating words over and over. It is a process of becoming aware of your thoughts and words in your day to day life. The more you can consciously include the positive intent of your affirmations into your daily thoughts and words, the quicker they wil take effect and work for you.

By developing small but positive changes in your mindset you can gain an enormous impact on your success.  Simply put, if you can steer your thinking onto a positive path , the benefits will follow naturally. A positive attitude is very important when it comes to your health and emotional wellbeing because many illnesses and ailments have been associated with negative beliefs and emotions.

Virtually every aspect of your life can be linked to your own beliefs and behaviors. The choices you make and the behaviors you have today will be the things that determine your future tomorrow. If you desire your future to be better than your past you need to change the thoughts that created that past and change them for ones that will bring you the future you want. Positive affirmations and positive thinking techniques are one of the best ways to achieve this.

Hypnosis and Pain Relief

Researchers at a Boston medical centre in 2000 found that hypnosis was able to reduce both surgical pain, time and improve safety.  During a trial of 241 patients the ones that used self hypnotic relaxation techniques generally needed less pain medication and left the operating theatre quicker.

These studies supported what many hypnotists have long maintained - that one of the most important benefits of hypnosis is in the control and management of pain.  Hospitals around the world are now beginning to use hypnosis to reduce pain and discomfort from surgery and other medical applications.  During the nineteenth century pioneering doctors such as James Esdaile and James Braid had used hypnosis to carry out major surgical operations.  However, the discovery of chemical anesthesia made surgical applications of hypnosis redundant and the techniques remained unused for years.

We all suffer pain in our lives at times.  When our body has a painful experience, this message travels through our nervous system to our brain, causing us to feel pain.  pain has a useful purpose, it tells us something is wrong. 

Anyone who lives with constant or recurring pain knows how uncomfortable this can be.  They may use drugs to manage the pain, which at times are effective but they can be expensive and may have some side effects. The advantage of using hypnosis to manage pain is that it has no side effects.  Pain relief through hypnosis has been used successfully especially in the case of burns.

In the treatment of pain, one technique is for the hypnotist to suggest directly to the patient's subconscious mind that the pain is getting less, melting away and ultimately disappearing.  This technique induces "analgesia" - this is when the body experiences sensations but not pain.  Another technique is where the patient dissociates from the pain.  The hypnotist asks the patient to imagine the pain as a seperate shape, object or colour and then visualise either of these gradually disappearing, perhaps by shrinking in size or floating away in a balloon.

When treating pain such as migraine headaches, a therapist may use hypnosis to eliminate the pain and then instruct the patient in self hypnosis so they can then deal with the discomfort if and when the migraine attacks reoccur.  It should be always remembered that pain is a signal that something may be wrong, so patients should always seek medical advice to treat the cause of pain as well as using hypnosis to manage it.

During deep hypnosis, it is possible for patients to experience anesthesia, this is were they feel no sensations at all.  During this state it is possible for them to undergo major surgery without experiencing any pain.  This can be extremly useful during dental work where patients are unwilling to have injections or chemicals when undergoing treatment.  The advantages of hypnosis is that there are no side effects (such as a numb mouth) or risks from general anesthetic.

Hypnosis can be used to rid a person's fear of visiting the dentist in the first place, this is a common phobia among many adults.  It can also used in reducing a patients bleeding during dental treatment such as the removal of a tooth.  research reveals that if it suggested to the subconscious mind that the patient will bleed less during treatment, then this is precisely what happens.

 Andy Bryant, a british man, in 1994 demonstrated the potential of hypnosis for pain control when he underwent a vasectomy operation without anesthesia.  Prior to the surgery, he put himself into a hypnotic trance and said he felt "great" after the four minute operation in London, Uk.

Explaining afterwards Andy said "you can feel the sensation of the knife cutting, but you switch the pain off."  he said he had known what to expect, as he previously had an operation on his toes some time earlier while under hypnosis.  Although on this occasion Andy brought along his own hypnotist, he had hypnotised himself ten minutes before the operation took place.

In the nineteenth century, a patient of James Esdaile had a tumor weighing more than one hundred pounds removed from his body while hypnotised - without feeling anything.

Hypnosis for Self-Improvement

Hypnosis for Self-Improvement.

Mention the word hypnosis to most people, especially the practice of it and their comments or beliefs about it will mostly be erroneous. So lets take a closer look at hypnosis. There are many positive things that can be achieved through the medium of hypnosis especially in the field of self-improvement.

If the practice of hypnosis interests you and you are considering its use to improve the quality in your life, read on for some ideas that may encourage you in where and how to use hypnosis.

Hypnosis can be used in treating fears, phobias and anxiety. When you have learned the method of hypnosis, you can use this skill in helping yourself to overcome your anxiety, especially those issues that are rooted deep in your subconscious mind because a lot of fears and phobias are difficult to treat working with just the conscious mind alone. So getting yourself into hypnosis where you can experience deep relaxation you can give your subconscious mind positive suggestions regarding your problem, this can be one of the effective uses of hypnosis. Phobias and anxiety can often become a hindrance to many people in their lives so learning hypnosis and how they can use it to help them eliminate these problems may just be an ideal solution for them.

Hypnosis can also be used in treating addictions and bad habits that seem to be difficult to control. These bad habits and addictions can be hard to break and difficult to deal with but seeking help from the subconscious mind through hypnosis can actually free you from the grip of these life problems.

 In the field of medicine hypnotherapy has now become a recognised treatment and its use has become a complementary treatment to medical proceedures and has been proven to assist in a fast and effective healing proccess.

Hypnosis can also be learned to help you eliminate other problems such as over eating or nail biting, problems that you believe are beyond your control.
Apart from these two common problems where hypnosis can be used, you can also learn hypnosis to help you increase motivation in your life especially when it comes to achieving goals and objectives. If you are trying to lose weight but your efforts are defeating you then you may find hypnosis an excellent technique to help you with these issues.

Another use of hypnosis is in business, utilizing hypnosis your persuasion skills can be drastically enhanced which of course is important in making sales and to expand your business.  A business will not be successful without promotion.  Advertising and marketing are an essential part of running a business so if you complement this with good persuasion skills that have been enhanced through hypnosis, you will be well on your way to managing a successful business as well.

It is important to think and consider that hypnosis should be used to make positive changes in yourself and the lives of others and not something to be used to gain an advantage over others.
